That's right, $910!!

I can't even imagine what a bottle of wine with enough of those grapes would cost. That is just as bad as the $999 iPhone useless app!

I guess if you haven't had fruit in 20 years, you could save up for some fruit?

Hm, before I clicked I assumed the price was for wine grapes from somewhere like this. But just to eat 'em? I can't help but think of the David Cross joke about the dessert that had gold leaf on it.
